WESTERN SPRINTER VICTOR Braedalbane Shows Saratoga Folk the Speed That Wins. Hullabaloo Defeats Billy Watts in the Seneca Stakes Edict an Easy Winner. SARATOGA SPRINGS. N. Y.. August 3. Desha Breckinridge has a speedy three-year-old in Braedalbane. He was the -winner of the best offering of the Saratoga Association for horses of that class when he took the Luzerne Handicap for horses of his age. At the end Little Chief had his nose at the saddle skirts of the winner and Morton L. Schwartzs Toil was only a length farther back. The stake race of the day was the Seneca Stakes, a selling dash that fell to W. C. Clancys Hullabaloo, but it was only a feature by reason of the fact that it was a stake I race, for the field that started in the Luzerne was an infinitely better one, and three of the five that went to the post are eligible for the Miller Stakes, to be run Saturday. During the afternoon there were frequent showere of rain, but the downpour was not sufficient to have an effect on the going and the track remained fast throughout the day. This was shown when the Luzerne, the filth race, saw the winner race three-quarters in 1:11. Mack Carner had the leg up on Braedalbane and he went right out with j . him to make the race. Toil, with a big pull I in the weights, went after him, with Surf j i Rider, making his first appearance of the meeting, in third place. Garner saved ground on all the turns with Braedalbane, while Toil raced out from ihe rail, but held to second place, and Surf Rider and Pirate Gold were running smoothly to hold their positions. It was not until the stretch turn wis reached that Little Chief had his opportunity. There he saved ground and came with a great rush at the end and finished in a fashion to suggest that an earlier effort would have landed him winner. SURF RIDER TRIFLE LIGHT. Surf Rider appeared a little light in the parade to the post. Braedalbane was giving Little Chief ten pounds, and, while there might have been an improvement on the Fator ride, it is not fair to take anything away from the son of Jack Atkin. He demonstrated that he is a colt of extreme speed and J. C. Milam sent him to the post in excellent condition. The stake race of the day brought together six three-year-olds and W. C. Clancys Hullabaloo repeated his recent Tonkers victory when he scored from Billy "Watts, while Tangerine got up in time to save third place by a narrow margin from Banker Brown. The race was a fast one and Hullabaloo ran the three-quarters in 1 :11. His victory was worth ,000 to the stable. For most of the way it was a two-horse race. Banker j Brown rushed into the lead at the start and McAtee went right after him with Hullaba- J loo. The pair of them, with Hullabaloo on the outside, where there was less chance ofj a bump, raced into a long lead over the others before the turn of the backstretch was reached. It seemed for all the world liKe a two-horse race until well into the stretch. There Banker Brown began to tire and as he shortened his stride Hullabaloo raced into the lead, while Billy Watts began to move up in resolute fashion and Tangerine, after being last of the six in the early running, was finding his way through on the inside. Billy "Watts continued to gain right to the end, but Hullabaloo held him perfectly safe, to be safely the winner by a length and a half. Billy "Watts was a like distance before Tangerine and he just got up in the last stride to nose the tired Banker Brown out for third place. Tarn and Nose Dive at no time cut any figure in the running. EDICTS COSTLY YICTORY. Edict, from the Rancocas Stable, in a measure atoned for the defeat of Thunderclap Wednesday when she was an easy winner of the opening five-eighths dash. It was a selling race for two-year-olds and after the first eighth the result was never in doubt The filly quickly forged to the front and after racing into a safe lead was under mild restraint the rest of the way. After the race Sam Louis bid up the winner from her entered selling price of ,700 to ,700, but she was protected and bought in for the stable by Sam Hildreth for ,705. For the second offering there was a mile for platers, with jockeys that had never ridden a winner as their pilots. The winner turned up in Sam Louis Halu, with Red Legs in second place and Moody easily beating Vendor for the short end of the purse. The only other starter was Frederick Johnsons Chateaugay and she was a distant last Halu was ridden by G. Mein, an apprentice Continued on twelfth page WESTERN SPRINTER VICTOR Continued from first pace. that has frequently taken part in such races. Mrs. "W. M. Jeffords Two Feathers, showing wonderful improvement, was winner of the fourth race, a sellng handicap at a mile. At the end he was doing his best to beat Costigan home, while "Wellfinder saved third money from Billy Barton. Back of them were Trevelyan, Caligula and Recount. The race run by Trevelyan was in contrast to his good showing on the opening day of the meeting, when he was a close second to Advocate and "Wellfinder was back of him. It might be said on his behalf that he was taking up nine pounds more weight and that he had some misfortune in the running. At the end of the program Southern Cross, a three-year-old son of Luke McLuke Pam-phyle was a winner from a band of maidens. There were ten went to the post and Broc-klesby, from the Glen Riddle Stable, was the only one to offer contention and he was all through before tho stretch was reached. Schuttinger saved Southern Cross alongside of Brocklesby to the far turn and by that time they had both raced into a big gap on the others. There Schuttinger eased his mount, but he went after Brocklesby again before the stretch was reached and passed him to come home a cantering winner by six lengths. E. R. Bradleys Brilliant Star outfinished the others to take second place by three lengths from the tired Brocklesby. Robert L. Gerrys Rectortown broke down badly on the backstretch and was pulled up there by McAtee.
